10th seeded 37- year old Venus Williams put aside her worries over charges for motor accident that claimed the life of its victim in the United State to defeat British women final hopeful and sixth seeded Johanna Konta’s in the semi-finals played earlier today. She won 6-4 6-2.
The five-time Wimbledon champion, will face Spain’s 14th seeded Garbine Muguruza, who thrashed unseeded Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1 6-1 in just 64 minutes to advance to her second Wimbledon final.
Konta, 26, who would have become the first British woman in a Wimbledon singles final since 1977, lost her nerve after the first set and crashed out to a more determined and experienced Williams, who at 37 is the oldest Grand Slam singles finalist since Martina Navratilova finished runner-up at Wimbledon in 1994.
This is her ninth final since winning her first title in 2000
